    I'll just post the ones that fit the category :)

    FBB 7, in the process of being de-fretted





    FBB Bass # 1112-06
    7 string fretted, 35" scale, 24 frets
    18mm string spacing
    Extended single cut Atlas body
    5A quilted maple top, quartersawn African mahogony back
    Matching quilt maple headstock veneer
    5 piece neck, rock maple/bloodwood
    Morado fingerboard bound in birds eye
    FBB/Dingwall custom pickups
    Audere Z-mode pre-amp
    Black hardware, Hipshot 18mm A-style bridge, Ultralite tuners
    THG Custom knobs
    SIT/Conklin Power Core strings B-F
    Slim neck profile
    Body specs: 13-13.875" wide, 10-21.375" upper bout


    Barker Vertical Bass Custom B1six





    The Barker is designed using the primary specifications of an electric bass, in that it has a 34" scale neck with a standard 10" radius, two electric bass pick-ups in the typical neck and bridge locations, and a standard bridge and headstock with typical electric bass tuners. But the Barker also has the vertical orientation of a double bass, a chambered body which emulates the acoustic body of a DB, stands on an endpin, and has the physical appearance of somewhat skinny DB.

    The fingerboard is a lined ebony, side dots in the typical fretted locations, 22 "frets" with 19mm spacing. The electronics are Basslines, passive, with Vol/Vol/Tone controls. The "tailpiece" is cosmetic only. Input jack is at the back of the bass on the left side, so it doesn't interfere with me while playing.

    Ultimate PJ built by the fine folks at Alembic- Signature electronics. Sold this one to help fund a medical procedure for a good friend. Easy decision to make, but I still miss this bass. :crying:
